The launch of Intel’s 8th generation cores allows for stringent specialisation, which is why gaming laptops need to step up their game and cater to the purists. MSI’s new launch revamps their entire line of laptops with better cooling systems, 8th generation Intel cores, and bigger audio chambers.
There are total 5 products that have been launched including the GE Raider RGB, GS65 Stealth Thin, and the GT75VR Titan. The revamped GT and GE series have come to India first, while the GS laptop was already available internationally and has actually come to India quite late.
There’s even a variant of the GT75VR Titan that features the Intel Core i9 processor.
Price and availability
The laptops can be pre-ordered from Flipkart, Paytm and other authorised sellers. The stocks will come in by the end of April and be available at authorised outlets. MSI, themselves, only have 3 stores all over India but they are opening a fourth in Pune.
One of the big concerns with MSI users is servicing. There were only 11 services centers at one point, but now the company has a total of 32 centers across the country. This is big boon for users who are willing to spend on a laptop but service accessibility was one of the factors holding them back.

The main attraction among the three is the GT75 Titan, as it has a Intel Core i9 overclocked processor. It also has a Cooler Boost Titan cooling design which helps six-core 12-thread configuration to bring 70% performance boost over previous i7 processor. With these extra cores, MSI wants to focus on gamers who stream their gameplays.
The GS65 Stealth Thin is the company’s first gaming laptop to feature a 144Hz 7ms IPS display with minimal bezels. It has 4.9mm thin bezels and screen-to-body ratio is 82%. For graphics, it packs a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 GPU and also has Intel’s 8th Gen i7 processor.
Weighing just 1.8kgs, the GT75 Titan focuses on portability. Also, it has an 82Whr battery, which the company claims to be one of the largest batteries to be available in a laptop of this size.
The GE Raider RGB Edition is inspired by sports cars. It is configurable up to the latest 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 GPU.
The GE Raider comes some useful features including Nahimic 3, Killer networking, Bluetooth 5.0, and more.
Additionally, the company also announced its plans to open 21 new service centres across India.
These new service centers are located in Jaipur, Kanpur, Indore, Thane, Visakhapatnam, Patna, Ludhiana, Varanasi, Vijayawada, Jodhpur, Raipur, Guwahati, Bareilly, Mysore, Jalandhar, Bhubaneswar, Bikaner, Kochi, Dehradun, Mangalore, and Udaipur.
